A Gaiwan is a Chinese bowl used for steeping and drinking tea, best suited for teas with delicate flavors or teas that can take multiple infusions such as Oolongs. When used as a drinking vessel, the lid serves to both keep the tea warm, and to block the leaves from consumption, while the saucer protects the fingers from heat. The tea may also be decanted into another vessel for drinking. Traditional gaiwan made of glass.
